Friends of Seaton Park have been busy organising the next ParkFest which this year will be from 1-4pm on Sunday 10 September and we’ll be celebrating the Park’s 70th birthday with CAKE, so come early to enjoy a slice!
Bucksburn Pipe Band, who are also celebrating their 70th year, will be helping us celebrate and we will have the Northern Lights Dog Agility Team demonstrating their skills. There will be bouncy castles, face painters, the balloon mannies and segways. The Countryside Rangers and the RSPB will be able to explain some of the wildlife to be seen in the Park. The Allotment Market Stall will be selling veg and putting on a cookery demonstration. If you like your food ready to eat then a burger van and ice cream trike will be attending. With many more attractions, it is going to be a fun day for all the family.
The event is free and so are most of the attractions. In order to keep it that way, we need your help with such things as stewarding, marshalling, yarn bombing trees, tombola, a little light litter collection, face painting, tattoo transfer sticking, and various other tasks. Even if you can only help for an hour or so, that would be fantastic. Please get in touch!
Third Annual General Meeting
Our third AGM will be held on Thursday 22nd June at 7.00 p.m. in the Leslie Room, Dunbar Street Halls. Please enter by the side door.
Come along and hear about all the things which have been happening in the park for the last few months and years!
Wee Toot, scoots a-boot

We are looking for some volunteer helpers for the wonderful annual event that is CakeFest! If you could spare a couple of hours on Saturday the 18th of March we’d love to hear from you.
Please email email@example.com for further info.
Twenty two children from St Peter’s Primary helped Aberdeen City Council gardeners and Friends of Seaton Park plant 20 assorted fruit trees to celebrate Seaton Park’s 70 th birthday. Will they sit beneath them with their own children we wonder?
As part of our effort to mark the park’s 70th anniversary we are planting 20 fruit trees (apples, cherries, plums, and pears, including some unusual heritage varieties) from 8:45am to approx.10:30am on Tuesday, 21 February, close to Mr Therm and the children’s playground. They will, we hope, produce masses of blossom for insects, and, in the fullness of time, fruit. Please come along if you would like to be involved. Bring a spade if you have one.
On the 3rd of February 55 children from Dyce Primary School brought a bit of sunshine to the park in their hi-vis vests to enjoy an al fresco lunch in the play area after exploring the River Don walks between Grandholm and the Brig O’ Balgownie.
